think that genes are important for violent behavior, but it's clear that the environment is also important, the way a child is raised and the type of society that they find themselves in. some new studies suggest that it's actually nature and nurture together that are most important. those studies were performed in iowa and they looked at adopted children and they examined both the biological parents as well as the parents who were adopting the children. they looked for signs of trouble, signs of criminal behavior, and then classified the children according to wther their biological or genetic ckground had problems, and/or whether or not their adoptive home environment had problems. whatas interesting was that, it took both a bad genetic background and a so-called "bad environment" to produce the highest levels of problems. aggression probably caused many-- caused by many factors like social or environmental situations but biology may also play a role there. there is a dutch family-- they have eight or nine males-- committed a very severe criminal act. when they looked closely, t
